January is the month when people make new year resolutions or set new goals, every year. We’re in the third week of January. Surveys tell us that many would have abandoned or even forgotten about their resolutions by the end of January. And many would try to just ‘get by’ until the year ends and start over again with another set of new resolutions or goals.
Are you one of them?
My first question is this: What makes the new year such a good time to set goals? I understand that when the clock strikes 12 midnight of the new year, it’s sort of like hitting a reset button – represents a clean slate, to start over again. Mentally, we get to start afresh with a renewed vigour to go after big dreams again. And it seems easier to let go of the disappointments, ill-feelings from setbacks and all the negative events that occured in the past year.
It’s like playing a computer game when you mess up halfway and you’re losing….you kind of give up and stop playing full out. You can’t wait for the game to end (or hit the restart button) so you can start over!
So my real question is this: Why is the new year the only good time to start afresh?
